New York Truck Braking Ability Accidents

A New York truck braking ability accident lawyer is the only person you can count on to represent your best interests when you have been critically hurt in an accident. When an accident happens with a commercial truck, you might not know immediately what caused it to occur.

An investigation after the fact and thorough review of all of these relevant details should be completed only by a knowledgeable New York truck braking ability accident attorney. A New York truck braking ability accident lawyer is the only person who will be able to review all of the various details associated with your case and help you to put together a compelling claim and demand for compensation.

No one else throughout this process will likely be interested in the best possible outcome for you, and that is why hiring a braking ability truck accident lawyer in New York is a necessity. If you can show that the truck driver did not have safe brakes on the truck to begin with and that an inappropriate maintenance occurred, you may be able to use this in a liability claim. Furthermore, if you can show that the truck driver did not exercise standard procedures with regard to applying the brakes and that this ultimately led to an accident in which you suffered severe or catastrophic injuries, your personal injury claim will help you to recover compensation to pay for your medical bills, your lost time at work and your pain and suffering.

Only an attorney, however, can handle these types of complex cases because you can expect that the other side will fight back and allege that they were not responsible for the injuries that occurred. They may try to allege that you were partially responsible for the accident or that nothing went wrong with the brakes. This is why you will need your own expert witnesses, accident reconstruction specialists and other professionals who can help to enhance the credibility of your case.

Ultimately, this could make or break the difference and you being able to recover the compensation that your family will require to move on from such an unfortunate incident. A case like this should never be left to chance and you should never try to represent yourself because the other side will likely have a strong background of many years practicing law and minimizing liability for the insurance company or the trucking company.

You might assume that the insurance company will do the right thing and seeing the severity of your injuries, award you the compensation you are owed. Instead, it is their primary goal to protect their own bottom line and this does not coincide with your goal of getting the funds that you need to put your life back together. Because of the high stakes involved in these types of lawsuits, you must have someone who is familiar with braking ability accidents and the types of evidence that needs to be gathered in order to illustrate liability on part of the other parties.

There are very serious things that can go wrong in a case like this and if you are not prepared by hiring a lawyer who has a track record of successful settlements or trial outcomes, you could expose yourself to risks and an inability to fully recover from your injuries. You deserve to have your focus on getting the necessary medical treatment and moving on with your life, not on worrying about whether or not you will be able to pay your bills. Hire a lawyer who can help you.

Client Reviews
When my mom, who is suffering from dementia, faced a slip and fall personal injury lawsuit, I contacted Stephen Bilkis of the Law Offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates. Not only did he provide a strategy for defending the claim, he also advised me on steps to take to avoid future personal liability. Whether you are the defendant or plaintiff in an injury case, I highly recommend Mr. Bilkis. S.M.
From the very first phone call to Stephen Bilkis' office, the staff was extremely polite and helpful in assisting me. Mr. Bilkis was honest and upfront with me from the beginning in what he projected the outcome of my case would be; in the end we got better results than either of us anticipated. He was very genuine and compassionate in understanding my situation and how this legal matter could effect not only myself but my family as well. I highly recommend this law firm and will most definitely continue using them for any future legal needs. Jarrett
I had my first encounter with Mr. Stephen Bilkis three years ago over the phone. He and his staff have been nothing but courtesy and professional. Their hard work ended with a large six-figure settlement for my case. I would highly recommend you contact his office. I want to give a special THANK YOU to Ms. Tricia Krapf. She always made me feel like a priority and was always kind and professional over the phone and email. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation. Celesta
